May wakes early and checks out the tree house while she waits for curfew to lift.
A little later, Ice and Tad are ready to start their day.
Tad thinks he’s really capturing the essence of blurred lines now.
May collects another gem and decides to turn in the lesser valued pieces so she can be done with the scavenger hunt.
The reason is evident when one glances back at home.
May arrives home and wonders if they have a guest.
She heads inside to ask her dad and a pleasant surprise awaits her.
Happy Birthday, May!
Tad lets her know the car is theirs but its too late to begin lessons tonight.
May takes out some of her frustration on the broken sink.
Tad merely smiles before encouraging her to head upstairs for her other birthday surprise. He’ll fix the sink since it’s her birthday but will show her how to do it herself next time.
The doorbell rings but he opts to pass on answering since he’s a bit busy at the moment.
May is speechless. Her room is private, quiet and has her favorite color … it’s perfect!
For the time being, Ice will bunk with Tad. His room is still very much a work-in-progress but Tad felt May needed a fully furnished room more than he did.
